SOTN Maria

Maria Renard
platforms Sega Saturn
categories Any%
All Bosses

Maria plays in a similar way to richter. All of her moves are unlocked at the start and the routes are similar. Unlike Richter she is much more resilient and can take a few hits without issues, allowing her to utilize damage boosts and some more room for mistakes. Console and emulator runs are separated into different categories due to a severe difference in performance.


Character Information
